Example text

Bertrane remonta sur son cheval noir et s’empara de la bannière de Signes avant de rejoindre le flanc droit de l’armée au côté de son époux qui s’était mis à prier. Aubeline et Bérarde l’encadrèrent. Les chevaliers les saluèrent. L’emblème de Signes leur était familier. Il représentait la célèbre cour d’amour dont la renommée s’étendait jusqu’à Byzance. La cour, née au lendemain de la première croisade, était le contrepoids des guerres qu’ils aimaient tant, la bête noire de l’Église bien-pensante ; on y parlait d’amour, d’amour et encore et toujours d’amour depuis plus de trente ans, avec l’espoir de changer la mentalité des féodaux.

Aubeline pénétra dans la nef où les grands se rassemblaient pour l’élaboration du traité. Les pourparlers n’étaient pas entamés. Les participants n’étaient pas au complet. Elle eut l’impression d’avancer dans un vaste tombeau. Elle avait des dons ; les pensées morbides des nobles l’assaillirent ; la présence des saints statufiés ne la rassura pas. Ils étaient en colère contre les hommes et les femmes agenouillés qui quémandaient pardon. Le Christ en croix au-dessus de l’autel souffrait et elle eut la vision du soldat romain plantant sa lance dans le flanc du Seigneur.

Elles ne pouvaient cependant les enfiler sans se décrasser et se débarrasser de la vermine. — Au trou du Latay, dit Aubeline. — Au trou du Latay, pour quoi faire ? demanda Bérarde faussement innocente. — Tu le sais très bien. Ça grouille dans ta tignasse. Bientôt les cafards te sortiront des oreilles et des trous du nez. — Mais je suis propre ! se récria la Burgonde. — T’es propre comme le cul d’une truie. Veux-tu que les gardes de la cour d’amour se chargent de nous plonger dans les lavoirs du village ?
